Immune boosting Green Smoothie
A smoothie so delicious that you would want to drink it everyday and not feel like you are dieting. With all the goodness of organic ingredients and loaded with spinach you will feel like a super hero and say goodbye to all those nasty virus and bacteria! ;)
Winter is always tough on everyone, we also had our share of flus and infections, I must admit I got lazy too. As much as I love my smoothies I don't feel like a cold drink during winter, but now the cold winter is behind us, at least that's what I tell myself, have to remember that I live in Ireland you never know when it is going get cold again. But it is almost spring and I have decided to go back to my delicious smoothies once again. Not only it is easy to make but full of nutrition to start my day.
So this immune boosting green smoothie is just what we need to rebuild that immune system. With nutrients like
- Mint leaves
- Chia seeds
- Organic natural yogurt
So you can imagine the amount of nutrition you are adding to your body. I noticed the years I switched to smoothies for breakfast I didn't fall sick that often, but the moment laziness set it, so did the flu! :(
I have added organic natural yogurt, which is good for your gut, you do know most of the illness starts from your gut, you heal it from within. :) You can replace the yogurt with any plant based if you like, also honey with maple syrup, to make it vegan.
For this recipe used my brand new Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender I love it and it has become a very useful gadget in my kitchen. The blender has a unique feature of Vacuum, which makes absolutely super smooth smoothies (without any air bubbles), reduces oxidation and retains the nutrients in the smoothies, as Froothie UK says. I did use the Vacuum option for this smoothie and my husband said he will have the smoothie after some time, so I left it in the fridge for good 2 to 3 hours and there was no discoloration at all.
